Berries are a great source of antioxidants and they are also naturally gluten free!  They provide for a great snack or complement pretty much any other dish.  Driscoll, one of my favorite brands of berries, recently sent me some coupons to purchase their berries.  I got blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries (I'm allergic to strawberries).

I decided to make Berry Cupcakes!  It's a very simple recipe.  All you need is your favorite gluten free cupcake mix or recipe (I used Betty Crocker's gluten free yellow cake mix), top the cupcakes with some gluten free icing (I used Betty Crocker's vanilla frosting) and then add your favorite berries to the top.

For more information about Driscoll products, please visit their website at  Also, check out their extensive assortment of gluten free berry recipes.

Gluten Free Baked Goods by Butterfly Bakery!

Recently, I was sent a box of gluten free chocolate chip cookies and a tray of gluten free mini blueberry muffins from the Butterfly Bakery.

This company started by making no-sugar products and has recently reached into accommodating the gluten free market.

The blueberry muffins were delicious and the chocolate chip cookies tasted like a regular (gluten-filled) one you would buy from your local bakery.

Butterfly Bakery makes their gluten free products using Teff flour.  Teff is loaded with potassium and vitamin B and has 14% more protein than wheat flour!

Currently, their gluten free product line includes:

  • Wild Blueberry, Banana Walnut, Lemon Citrus Poppy, and Spiced Apple Raisin Muffins
  • Lemon Citrus, Plain Vanilla Creme, and Espresso Sliced Creme Cakes
  • Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Cranberry Raisin, and White Chocolate Coconut Cookies
  • Golden/Chocolate Mini Cupcakes with Icing
Butterfly Bakery products are available to purchase on Amazon and at selected bakery departments across the country.
